Westport applies the most advanced composite technologies and materials - like infusion, resin impregnation and advanced coring materials - to create vessels that are both light in weight and superior in strength, comparing favorably to steel and aluminum but without vulnerability to corrosion.
Composite yachts require less maintenance, so their owners spend more time cruising, and less time in dry dock.
A Fine Composite Yacht Requires Exceptional Molds, and Westport Has No Equal.
Westport's exhaustive design, tooling and build engineering processes result in a range of yachts that meet known standards for speed, draft, seakeeping abilities and range.
Those performance standards include exceptional cruise speeds, allowing fast crossings and more frequent daylight arrivals at destination ports. At the same time, Westport yachts can be throttled back to deliver cruising range comparable to slower vessels.
Delivery schedules are equally predictable. Each Westport yacht undergoes extensive testing, system checks and pre-run in the finish bay, and so are ready to run, typically within mere hours of launch. While owners of other yachts often must endure weeks or months of completion and fitting-out, Westport owners are out cruising.
Computer-driven milling processes ensure a flawless finish on every part, and they allow engineers to integrate more features into each mold to reduce the number of mechanically-fastened sub-assemblies for superior structural integrity. Proven coring materials and other state-of-the-art coring materials impart exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation properties, so Westport yachts are quieter, more comfortable and free of condensation problems. Alexseal® paint systems create a brilliant finish on every Westport yacht for lasting beauty.
